Africans will simply not forget

RE:Why they want you to ‘get over colonialism’” (The New Times, February 15).

All of them hold very extravagant commemoration of their victories in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 wars. Why would they do that I wonder; why not just forget and move on, especially when they ask us to forget our own terrible losses a bare two decades ago in which some of them were active perpetrators while the others just looked on unconcernedly?

Given their inglorious roles in both colonialism and subsequent widespread crimes on our continent, in general and Rwanda in particular, one wonders whence they get the gall to ask us to forget and to move on, especially that such selective memory loss is intended to benefit only themselves.
